With classes finally over for the summer, I'm opening back up for commissions this summer.
I've made a few alterations to my previous commission information, so here's the new version:
No copyrighted material (some exceptions): While I appreciate creativity within established universes, I'll not use any copyrighted material without its owner's express permission. If you wish to commission a work depicting a character within a pre-existing universe, that character's design must be fully original. There are some exceptions. It's my understanding that Games Workshop (Warhammer, Warhammer 40,000) and Privateer Press (Iron Kingdoms, Warmachine, Hordes) both encourage fan-created artwork, even commissions.
Accepting/declining commissions: I reserve the right to choose whether or not I will accept a commission. Regardless of whether I accept or decline, you will receive a response to your request. If you don't receive a response within a few days, that doesn't mean I've declined- it may simply be that I'm busy.
Cancellation: I reserve the right to, at any point during the commission process, cancel work on the commission. Sometimes, issues will come up and I'll not have time to complete a commission within a reasonable frame of time. If this occurs, you will be refunded anything you've paid up to that point (depending on how we work out the payment for your individual commission).
May not re-produce or redistribute the commissioned work.
May not exhibit the commissioned work in any online or offline gallery without the artist's express permission.
Nothing Illegal: I won't depict any sort of illegal activities.
Nothing Pornographic: Let's keep it "Rated PG-13", okay?
On a related note: As a general rule, I don't do nudes. Call me a prude if you must.
What to expect: Bear in mind that I am principally a character and mecha designer. I'm not much good at action scenes or environments. Designing characters is what I'm best at, and my assumption is that that's why most people want me to do work for them.
Pricing: As my work tends to be detail-oriented, the base price for my commissions is $25 USD. The exact price will be worked out as I figure out exactly how much work will be required to complete the commission. (I want to keep things affordable, so I'm setting a tentative maximum price at $50.)
Means of contact: I can work with clients through DA's note system, but I understand that some people like to communicate through Skype. If you'd prefer to communicate through Skype, please send me a note here on DA letting me know that, and I'll get you my Skype address. If you do contact me on Skype, make sure that you let me know who you are here on DA so I can keep names straight.
Payment: For the moment, I'm only accepting payment through Paypal. I'll contact you with my payment information upon acceptance of the commission. At that time, we can discuss payment options, such as how or when to break up the payment, if at all.
If you're interested in commissioning a piece, just shoot me a note.
